Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 82.5/100, a mean average of 81.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.0.

This is such an amazing album, definitely the best Genesis album, Carpet Crawlers is the biggest highlight bit truly there are no bad songs here, all of them create an almost movie album experience. It's hard for that long album to maintain to be interesting to the end, but as fas as It started I felt that these are the ending credits to the album. Generally great, instrumentals always slick, obly vocals are sometimes annoying.

It's a stunning record, hardly anything bad about it. It stands the test of time too. Lyrically it can be hard going as the storyline isn't immediately accessible but the level of musicianship is beyond question. A fabulous piece of work.

A great, very rewarding Genesis album. It contains the best material the band ever wrote. But it's flawed too, and a little frustrating. Half of the songs could be left out and it would make no difference. A little overrated but still very good.

It's hard to tell if it's their best, as there are many contenders, but it's definitely their grandest achievement.

An absolute trip of an album. It's a bit difficult to digest, as it spans 90 minutes in length, but if you've got the time for it, I highly recommend it. The story, while a bit confusing at points, is one of the best that any concept album has ever had. Gabriel's heart and soul is clearly poured all over this one, and the band backs him up with some the finest instrumental moments of their career. Tracks like In the Cage, The Carpet Crawlers, Back in NYC, It, and the title track are simply fantastic pieces of art. It does wander a bit too far in some spots, but it's nearly on the straight and narrow for its entire duration. Worthy of being crowned one of the greatest prog albums ever made.

The last album with Peter Gabriel and probably their best. The music follows the lyrics in a brilliant way.
